I am able to mount windows in /mnt/win directory but the Wine is not able to autodetect the partition.
I have made an entry in /etc/fstab also.

Please advise.

You are probably best off not using wine like this. A virtual machine is probably more like what you need. Wine is intended to provide a complete, stand-alone system for running windows applications on other operating systems (typically Linux, MacOS etc). It uses a set of "fake" disks, which are really just directories off a common root (typically, in your home directory, it will make a folder calle .wine). You can put in links to your "real" windows drives, mounted somewhere in your linux filesystem, inside your .wine directory... browse it and see.

http://www.winehq.org has plenty of help, and the winecfg can be used to interactively set up nearly all the parameters for wine.

When you do this, what errors do you get? Is Internet Explorer just an example or do you really want to use it? In the latter case, have you tried IEs4Linux?

Hello, I'm a student software developer. As a part of an excerise I'm doing I'm trying to build a program to create "mount files" and mount them.

All I want to do is be able to create a hidden partition inside an existing partition (by providing an offset just like in FreeOTFE) and be able to mount and dismount it. Without...

In most modern distributions of Linux and Unix (at least ones with graphical environments like KDE, Gnome or XFCE), you get to mount your partitions easily from the desktop. In some cases however, it isn't that easy. Note, that all of these commands have to be run in a terminal as root user. To open a terminal (sometimes called a console), either press ALT+F2 and type xterm (alternatives could be konsole or terminal) or press CRTL+ALT+F1 to...
